Captain America is not just a superhero or the Avengers’ on-again, off-again leader. He’s a symbol, both in Marvel’s comics and here in the real world, for all of the potential the US has to be an agent of justice and change in the larger world.

We recently spoke with writer Ta-Nehisi Coates about the politics (or lack thereof) in his new run and how he’s approaching the famous character.


Steve Rogers has been through hell. Marvel's Secret Empire event took the character to a dangerous place, one that spent the best part of a year muddying the public image of both one of comics' most beloved heroes and his publisher. This week, the Steve we knew is back, but his new comic isn't quite yet willing to address his recent history. Instead, it wants to concentrate on all his other years as a hero.


Today sees the release of the second chapter of Marvel's Secret Empire, the event series that has seen Steve Rogers fall from one of Earth's mightiest heroes to the leader of a fascist, totalitarian Hydra ruling over the United States. Except the issue also hurls a wrench into the works that throws into question over a year's worth of Marvel's comic stories.
